Unlocking the Future for MDE!
2017-2018 MDE PTA
Annual Fund Campaign
Dear MDE Families,
We recognize that this is an unprecedented time in our community; however, MDE still needs your support! MDE PTA’s Annual Fund is one of the most important fundraising programs that provides resources used to support the entire MDE community. The Annual Fund campaign funds 27% of our PTA budget, from specialist teacher salaries and supplies to curriculum materials and teacher professional development. Your Annual Fund gift makes a real difference to MDE!
As one of the primary sources of operating income, the Annual Fund ensures the strength and success of MDE’s programs such as the Science and Math Labs, Writers In School, Cultural Arts Week, Field Trips and many more. Investing in the Annual Fund will guarantee this generation of Ponies will benefit from your generosity.
We ask all families to give to the campaign, striving for 100% family participation. No amount is too small! The two classes with the highest percent of participation will win POPSICLES with DOUBLE RECESS! Please consider making a donation by November 1st to this year’s Annual Fund campaign.
On behalf of the MDE PTA, thank you! We appreciate your generosity and ongoing support!
